The Passage by Dan DasMann and Karen Cusolito

"The Passage" by Dan DasMann and Karen Cusolito:

Pictures from BRC 2005 are slowly coming in. Though this is not the best picture, it is of the piece of art that brought me to my knees this year. It is called The Passage and stands about 35' tall. I was utterly confounded and wept when I first saw this intense manifestation. Many times during the week I woke up in the middle of the night and rode my bike out to contemplate this work. I cannot recall ever being moved like this by art.

Here is a detail of the mother pouring fire into the child's hand.

And here is a shot of the footprints that were placed out behind the figures. At night these footprints would be on fire.

Freaking, awesome installation. Thanks for posting up the images. I can only imagine the impact on people who get to see it in reality.

thanks again
